David HONEYBOY Edwards – R.I.P.

HONEYBOYDescribing his Bluesman life: ” On Saturday, somebody like me or Robert Johnson would go into one of these little towns, play for nickels and dimes. And sometimes, you know, you could be playin’ and have such a big crowd that it would block the whole street. Then the police would come around, and then I’d go to another town and where I could play at. “
